The Tai Lopez Show

“When something is politically incorrect, that means it’s actually correct. Politically incorrect is just a way to brush over reality.” - Michael Knowles

Curiosity fuels skill.

To get the most out of life means maximizing knowledge in all aspects of it. How to be a better father translates to how to be a better boss. Learning how to talk about politics will better your interview skills for the next job. To gather new skills, you have to constantly be learning and asking questions, and the avalanche of skill development will consequently tumble forward.  

On this week of The Tai Lopez Show, we spoke with a wide range of experts. From political commentators Ben Shapiro and Michael Knowles to NFL wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. to meditation/mindfulness expert Jay Shetty, this varied insight will help us take our personal and professional lives to the next level.
